Kenya signed three key co-operation deals with Lesotho, and the Southern African state promised to endorse Kenya’s bid to get a permanent seat at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).

President Kenyatta said the deals are geared towards boosting the bilateral and political co-operation between the two countries. Kenya entered into an agreement on the establishment of a Joint Commission for Co-operation (JCC), a memorandum of understanding for bilateral consultations, as well as a memorandum of understanding in sports.

Dr Thabane, who arrived in the country on Sunday evening for a three-day state visit, was formally received yesterday by Uhuru at a ceremony that included a guard of honour mounted by a detachment of the Kenya Army, and a 19-gun salute.

 Uhuru said Kenya is keen to learn about developing the textile sector from Lesotho as the country implements its Big 4 Agenda. Lesotho has one of the most vibrant textile sectors in Africa, with a growing share of the global apparel market.
